Berrick Hall

Berrick Hall

Berrick Hall was designed by American architect J.H. Morgan and served as the residence for the English tradesman, B.R. Berrick. It was built in a distinctive Spanish style (also known as the Spanish Colonial Revival-style) and many of the rooms are south-facing, creating a bright sense of spaciousness. It was the largest residence in the pre-war district of Yamate, known for being a foreign residential area and was built on a 600 tsubo lot (approx. 1985 m2 or 0.5 acres).

The highlights of this property are diverse. Small quatrefoil windows, known for their association with Islam, and a tiled roof featuring a chimney are among the decorative motifs used outside. Inside, some of the flooring uses black-and-white checkered tiles. The walls are done in a fresco style. The entryway and stairs both feature lovely ironwork. Additionally, the unique sunroom is furnished with a lion-masked wall fountain. Connected to the second floor’s women’s bedrooms is another sunroom where even today, glimpses of the Yokohama Port are still possible.
